And so the ironman series starts

Jan 22, 2020

“Be stronger than your strongest excuse”

Finding out he is paralyzed from the waist down, after setting his sight on a career in rugby, was Alwyn Uys’ strongest excuse.  Excuse to be average, to just be that guy in a wheelchair, to be the one everyone felt sorry for.  But this weekend he will start his 3 event IRONMAN series for 2020, being the first South African to complete a full IRONMAN.

Not even to mention his participation in the Cape Peninsula Marathon, Para-Tri African Cup and Comrades 2020 later this year.


It is easy for an outsider to say: “Wow Alwyn.  You are an inspiration.”  But it’s the getting up early, eating healthy, training harder than any other person, that makes it hard.  And Alwyn, you do it so well!


Good luck with this weekend.  We back you one hundred percent.

Now you can be the one everyone looks up to.
